What a night! Thrilled to congratulate my friend, President-Elect Donald Trump on a hard-fought campaign and victory. @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/FCpT1sPphR— Linda McMahon (@Linda_McMahon) November 9, 2016
The McMahons support isn't a surprise, as Linda McMahon herself donated $6 million to Trump's Rebuilding America Now super PAC, as well as $5 million to the Donald J Trump foundation along with her husband Vince. Up till this point, current and former stars had been told to avoid the topic of Trump, but not that he's President they've started sharing reactions on Twitter (via CageSideSeats).
Ironic. I've not seen one tweet from a gloating Trump supporter today but I've seen hundreds of hateful, & obscene ones from Hillary's side.— Jerry Lawler (@JerryLawler) November 9, 2016
There were others who threw their support behind Trump's election, like Jerry Lawler and Bubba Ray Dudley. Lawler specifically called out the lack of name calling from Trump supporters.
Many people asking...— Bubba Ray Dudley (@bullyray5150) November 9, 2016
"How did the media get it so wrong?"
Because they have been lying to you every step of the way.
There were also plenty of superstars saddened at the news, including Renee Young, Sasha Banks, Austin Creed, AJ Brooks, and Sami Zayn.
Unbelievable. This doesn't feel real.— Renee Young (@ReneeYoungWWE) November 9, 2016

Horrible nightmare last night. It was so weird, I was in Germany but the U.S. was Germany now? But from like, 80 years ago? So weird? Scary.— Sami Zayn (@iLikeSamiZayn) November 9, 2016

If you like it, great. If you don't, make the best of it, and you get to try again in 4 years. We still live in a great country.#PMA— Corey Graves (@WWEGraves) November 9, 2016
Many superstars took a stance somewhere in the middle, including Corey Graves, who made the case that no matter who is President, it still falls on you to be successful. Other stars in this realm were John Layfield, Beth Copeland, Lana, Matt Hardy, and Dolph Ziggler.
Once upon a time, I was on welfare. And I worked my ass off to get where I'm at. Period. No president helped me. You're no different. #PMA— Corey Graves (@WWEGraves) November 9, 2016
I believe in love and respect. I believe in fairness, equality and humanity above all. That is what I will teach my daughters. Goodnight.— Beth Copeland (@TheBethPhoenix) November 9, 2016
Today America better to lose count while naming your blessings than to lose your blessings to counting your troubles...— Lana (@LanaWWE) November 9, 2016

You now have an obligation to all Americans, no matter their race, gender or SO, to be a better man. Make it happen.
Most who told us everything for the last 12 months have been wrong, don't think they they have the answer all of a sudden https://t.co/QJQo9Xl0Za— Dolph Ziggler (@HEELZiggler) November 9, 2016
